Workaround for Outlook flagged emails/to do

You should be able to create a task in from an email instead of just flagging it. I mapped "create task with body of email" action to Ctrl+Shift+9 (I use the mouse with my left hand so it's easiest to press this combination with my right hand) and just use that instead of flagging the mail.

The downside:
You loose the context of that conversation. So you can't do something like "find related" and get the whole thread. Not a complete deal breaker for me, but I'm experimenting with this until someone figures out "pull all tasks AND to-do's into toodledo-outlook sync". I will probably only use this with home type items as those are the only things I really need on my iphone (via Ultimate To Dos).
